Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft
Operations Training Course 2019
Description: ESA’s Education Office is offering 30 university students the opportunity to participate in the fifth edition of the Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft Operations Training Course and to learn about the fascinating world of spacecraft operations. This 4-day course without excessive mathematics or technical jargon will take place from September 3 to 6, 2019 and will show students how ‘driving’ a spacecraft is different from designing it.
Open to: Bachelor, Master and PhD engineering and physics students.
Application Deadline: July16, 2019
CubeSats Hands-On Training Week 2019
Description: ESA’s Education Office is inviting 26 motivated university students to participate in the second edition of the CubeSats Hands-On Training Week, to be held from 16 to 20 September 2019. During this 5-day training week, students will learn about small satellite design and testing through lab sessions delivered by Theia Space using a CubeSat training model (ESAT), which will be complemented by technical lectures delivered by ESA experts. This training week is especially suitable for students who are involved in a CubeSat project or would like to be.
Open to: Bachelor, Master and PhD engineering students.
Application Deadline: August 2, 2019
